Aisling D'ArtThis site is about art and journaling, art and mixed-media art, art and painting, art and mailart, art and ATCs, art and fiber arts, and…

Well, you get the idea.

I’m Aisling D’Art, and this website – at Aisling.net – has been online since the 1990s. (It started at GeoCities’ Soho community.) I’ve written hundreds of articles here, mostly how-to ideas and examples. All of them are about making art, especially art for journals.

For 2020, I decided to reorganize this site and relaunch it with a fresh name. But… I had no idea what to call it.

After two days of trying to find the best name, I was talking with my husband. I said, “I’m trying to find a name for the site that suggests everything artsy I work on. So, it needs to be ‘art and…’ something.”

And then he & I laughed, because that phrase fits this site perfectly.


I still want people to find this site when they’re art journaling, scrapbooking, creating mixed media art, and so on.


  • You can reach this site with its original URL: Aisling.net.
  • Or, you can use ArtAndSomething.com.
  • And, later in 2020, I’ll merge ArtistsJournals.com with this site, so that URL will point here, too.

Yes, I’ve been online for a long time, and I’ve collected a lot of great domain names. And it’s time to put them to use, and make this website more useful to visitors, too.
